Stayed Twice, will do it again...from A TripAdvisor Member
Highly Recommend!!!from Generae01
Great hotelfrom travellingteachers
Great Choice for San Diegofrom cr4909
The hotel room itself was spotless, looked new, and is maybe slightly larger than a typical room. The bathroom was sparkling clean and even had a Toto toilet (top-of-the line). They have both an indoor and outdoor pool, and a nice-sized fitness room. The staff was very friendly and they have a concierge to help you with any needs. My only complaint was the $10 charge for parking (at least it was covered).
Most comfortable bed!from brouhaha63
I agree that the Doubletree was missing some nice additions, such as free internet, free parking, and a minifridge/microwave in the room, but if you are just looking for a place to sleep, you'll sleep well here.

Grrreat Stay!!! Grrreat Hotel!from SouthMauiGuy
The Hotel staff was wonderfull to us. The amenities were numerous, but the icing on the cake were the two BIG fire pots/pits near the pool. They were Grrreat. You could sit around the pool at night in comfort witha drink or a book and the fire roaring. Very classy touch.
The flooring around the entry and pool area looked to be a Quartzite material that looked great. The room was very spacious, beds very comfortable and the Location good. We were assigned a room facing the 163/8 freeways. It was a bit noisy with the sliding door open, quiet closed.
At First, we thought this location was a drawback, but BIG surprise we had a lanai (balcony) and a picturesque view of the TWO different Fireworks displays. One was from the Seaworld Area and one from the Coronado area.
All this plus free parking @ a great price using priceline 75 a night over the 4th holiday was very good. The staff was very friendly and helpfull. I fully recommend this hotel to anyone.
Update on Hotelfrom SteveSanFrancisco
The only minor this is the cookies and hoe they give them out. I arrived at the hotel and checked in at 9am- I really did not want to eat a warm cookie at that time by 9pm that evening when I usually enjoy a cup of coffee and a snack before bed the cookie was hard and obviously cold but otherwise I can not complain the service was good.
A great choice.from A TripAdvisor Member
Be aware that there are several large newer office buildings around the mall area as well, so it is not strictly a vacation spot, but this didn't bother us at all since the area was not overrun with business activity. Except for the physical presence of the buildings, you'd never know they were there.
If you don't want to drive to the San Diego area attractions there is a trolley directly across the street from the hotel which brings you to places like Old Town, downtown, or even the national border adjacent to Tijuana, Mexico. We took a full day trolley pass for $5 and went to downtown and San Ysidro which is on the border with Tijuana. At San Ysidro you can just walk over the pedestrian bridge into Tijuana itself or take the bus waiting there direct to the main tourist shopping area.
The hotel has a very nice lobby with a second floor balcony overlooking it. There is a nice restaurant there, a bar with some individual flat screen TVs, and a relaxing area. There is an adjacent outdoor pool with fire pits and an indoor one more suitable for lap swimming and an exercise room. The wait staff was very nice and the hotel was not crowded, which pleased us.
The room itself was good---better than a Ramada in our opinion, but not quite a Sheraton. There seemed to be two basic sizes of rooms. We had the slightly larger one and had two queens. There was no bar or fridge in the room. You have a choice of self-service parking in the convenient adjacent parking deck or valet parking---self service cost us $10 additional to the basic room rate, valet was $15. The room rate for us was $179 per night which we learned was much higher than off-season but lower than summer. We stayed the last week of June into fourth of July weekend. We liked the place a lot and would stay there again, just wish the rates were lower, when you add in the tax and parking we dropped over $200 per night.

Top Local Tips for San Diego
Using the trolley The ticket machines are not very user friendly. it's easier and cheaper to just punch in all day pass (it costs 5 bucks a person) to avoid having to figure out destination pricing. You can ride the trolley all day and even transfer to the buses with it, no fuss.
Use the public transportation trolley, buses You really get to know a city when you use its public transportation system.. and besides that no driection hassels, parking hassels. This town has a great transportation system!! From our hotel in Hazard Center, and any hotel on the trolley route you can get everywhere! IWe did not have a car, and used the public transportation Trolley, and bus all weekend, and easily got from this hotel to Old Town for great Mexican atmosphere, , the Harbor for the Harbor tour and to visit the USS Midway floating museum, Gaslamp area, San Ysidro/Tijuana border ( I wanted to see the border-town), and a bus that traversed the whole Island of Cornado, and let us off by the beautiful del Coronado hotel. Total transportation costs for 2 days: $18.00 for 2 people!! We chose to take a cab to the airport, but a bus would have gotten us there too.
Trolley The trolley will take you just about everywhere you need to go. When traveling to the Padres game, traffic was stopped on the freeway and side streets. We were able to take the trolley to the game and leave traffic and parking worries behind.
